Gateway laptop m465e power supply problem

My computer seems to have a power problem. I have 2 adaptors that I know work, but i can just be working on my computer and it will lose power. The battery isn't getting charged either so I can't even work on off the battery. I would by a new battery, but if the power supply won't charge it I don't see a reason to spend the money. The rest of the computer is still in great shape and would love to keep it, but need to find out how to fix this connection otherwise the computer will be of no use.

    The battery went dead and won't charge.  Shouldn't the computer work since it's plugged in even if the battery won't charge?

M465-e has flashing blue light wont startup

Try removing the battery and disconnecting the power for a minute or so. Then re-install the battery and power cord and try booting it up again. If that doesn't work I'm afraid it's probably an issue with the motherboard.

If in the unfortunate event the motherboard needs to be replaced, here are the instructions:

Looks like boards range between $100 - $200
If it's not something you want to tackle yourself, expect labor to be about $100. Consider the age of the laptop and the cost of about $200-$300...some newer laptops can be had for that amount. (Especially with Black Friday sales going on.) Check

Is there in built web in my laptop M465E gateway. if not then tell me how to attach my logitech web cam with it.

There is a WLAN, a wireless internet connection card for this computer and connecting your webcam should be as easy as plugging it into your USB port and using the disk it came with to activate it. If the picture is correct on this question, you need an adapter from you local computer store. The adapter will likely be about 5 to 20 dollars, and this will allow you to plug it into a USB port after you attach the adapter.

Laptop does not work off mains and battery does not charge

Just check the power connection from the AC going to your laptop if the power adaptor of your laptop are working. Note; you only know that the power adaptor was working if the LED (Light Emiting Diode) was light because the power adaptor are have the LED to see it that they are working normally. If the power adaptor working normally their was a problem of the power supply inside your laptop and need to be repair by the electronic service center. But if the power adaptor are not working the problem are in the power adaptor. I recommend that you replace your power adaptor and bring it to the computer store to check its type and model it is because only same type or model of that power adaptor to be replace.

There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

Laptop does not power up or turn on anymore!

You seem to be in deep trouble..

It sure seems to be a motherboard issue. I will advise you to buy a new MBD. And to your relief, the data on harddrives will be "nil" affected by the motherboard change.

There might be an easier and cheap solution to the problem, but the area to be audited to find the solution is large with no guarentee that we will find a viable solution. Motherboard replacement will be an instant solution..

If you own a dell laptop, but a complete cover warranty that will include a free motherboard replacement and warranty for 1 more year..
